Eleven Is Heaven!

Last night we celebrated our Grandson, Anthony's,11th birthday.
He's the nicest 11yr. old I know! He's so funny and sweet (don't tell him I called him "sweet!")
Can you tell from his cake that he loves football?  My son took him to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio for the day. (Yes, he played hookie from school!)  They had a blast and enjoyed the time together..just the 2 of them.  Kiddos need those together times with Dad!
His little brother Cameron was eager to help celebrate!
His Mom made his request...Tacos...It was a taco fest! They were very yummy!
Some of the other party goers were his older Sister Driana.  She snuck in after she was done working at her very first job.  She got her very first paycheck too..a milestone moment!
 His other older Sister, Summer wasn't as happy about getting her pic taken...no time to doll it up...but I think she's lovely!  She's the artist who surprised me with this lovely painting she did.  I love it Summer! Thank you so much!
It's fun to get gifts when it's not your birthday!
Gifts were opened....tacos eaten..and then:

Candles blown out!!  Happy 11th B-day Buddy!  We love you tons!  (Now stop getting so old, it makes me look bad!)

Wowsers time goes by fast. I think some of my favorite memories with the kids are playing hookies for one reason or another with them.

Happy Birthday, Anthony! How fun is it to live close enough to the football hall of fame to go for your birthday?! I think Summer looks lovely too!

Happy Birthday to Anthony. It's nice when they are still young enough to want a family party. I'm sure football day with Dad was a big hit too.

Anthony is such a cutie. In my mind I still see him as about 4 years old. :)

Good times with the family. And don't you just hate to see the kids grow up? I do!

Birthday's are so special, but I prefer for my grandkids not to grow up either. My little grandson has his first loose tooth. That just kills me because it means he's not a baby anymore. Happy Birthday to your Anthony!

Eleven-year-olds are the best. I'll never forget the day my daughter said, "I wish Hunter could be 11 forever!"

Happy Birthday to Anthony. What a great time for all the family and a special treat that he got to go to the Hall of Fame with his Dad! Congratulations to sister Drianna on her first paycheck - I still remember what mine looked like and how much it was.
Looks like you all had a good time and plenty to eat. All the kids are good-looking (even the one who wasn't dolled up)!
